Only to be expected

The film adaptation of Annette Curtis Klause's wonderful YA novel Blood and Chocolate is out today, and the reviews are uniformly unenthusiastic. There's a lot of comments along the lines of "it's not the worst movie I've ever seen", while the reviewers who've read the book are describing the film as "a complete and utter bastardization of the novel". There are also a number of jokes about the title, including my favorite: the critic who suggested that they re-name it Hot Topic: The Movie.

On the other hand, it's not like I was expecting a GOOD movie, so I'm still looking forward to it. When it comes to film adaptations of my favorite books, I find that low expectations are the secret to happiness.
